Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Man with alleged link to Somali terrorist group arrested in Tucson

A refugee couple in Tucson were arrested by authorities and are facing numerous charges of falsifying immigration documents, including lying to federal officials about the husband’s involvement with an African terrorist organization, officials said Friday.

Mohamed Abdirahman Osman, 28, is facing eight counts of supplying false information on immigration documents, and his wife, Zeinab Abdirahman Mohamed, 25, is facing three counts of providing false information in support of Osman as they sought refugee status in 2013 while living in China and permanent residency in 2015 while living in Tucson, according to the indictment filed in U.S. District Court.

The indictment states Osman gave false information about his name and nationality, telling immigration authorities he was from Somalia, when in fact he was from Ethiopia.

He also denied being associated with a terrorist organization. The indictment states Osman later admitted that he was recruited to join the terrorist group al-Shabab and had moved from Jijiga to Mogadishu, Somalia, at the direction of the terrorist group. He also later admitted to knowing several members of the al-Shabab organization.

Prosecutors allege Osman also lied to an immigration officer about being injured in a bomb blast in a Somali market in 2010. The indictment said he was injured in 2009 while handling explosives.

Al-Shabab is an Islamic militant group operating primarily in Somalia and has ties to al-Qaida. It is responsible for a string of terrorist attacks on civilians, governments and military personnel in countries such as Somalia, Kenya and elsewhere, and has been designated a foreign terrorist organization by the United States.

The husband and wife first applied for refugee status to the United States while living in China. Their request was accepted and they have lived in Tucson since, the news release said.

Authorities arrested the two Friday. The investigation was handled by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security through the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
